If you've never tasted this beer, you, my friend, are in for a real treat. It has a very crisp taste to it. You need to try it very, very cold-almost freezing, to bring out that awesome taste. Stone Pale Ale, I.P.A. and Arrogant Bastard Ale, are quite simply the finest beers in the world. Haven't tried Double Bastard yet. It's hard to find, because it's a seasonal brew. Looking forward to it though! : )

Solid IPA. Nice middle of the road and well balanced 'every day' drinker. If you're not feeling to adevnturesome, and just want a comfort beer, this will fill the bill quite nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It has a quite powerful hops smell with plenty of citrus flavors mixed in. The color is golden with plenty of cling on the sides and a bountiful white head. There is a heavy grapefruit flavor with floral hops. There is flavoring of rind as well with a bitter floral and rind finish.

Pours a hazy orange colour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, citrus, pine, hints of caramel and plenty of hops. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a big hoppy finish. Great stuff!
